Many users of the Instagram faced a hacker who posted pictures of smoothies and fruits on their accounts. They had been already assailed by this fellow in June. But he seems to be back again.


The annoying messages showed pictures of fruit and smoothies. And the person who was sending them wrote text which invited Instagram users to try his new fruitarian diet. It’s been about four hours or so since this nuisance Net freak has been poking his nose where it doesn’t belong. According to The Verge, these links look like BBC posts but they in fact are attempts to gain valuable information by the hacker who is still at large. The only logical thing to do right now is not to click on those links. Furthermore, if your Instagram account has been hacked then you can always change your password. The whole thing may be a minor glitch in the system but nevertheless it is cause for concern.

It all started when several Instagram users began to complain on Twitter regarding this smoothie seller who was making claims that his diet was the healthiest thing around. Moreover, a certain URL had been affixed to their accounts by the hacker. The real problem began when many users who tried to reset their passwords found themselves locked out of their accounts. This spelled trouble. In June, a similar bogus spam appeared on Instagram users’ sites listing the health benefits of fruits. Seeing the fact that a million and one diets are being touted as the cure for obesity today, this hardly comes as a surprise. Meanwhile, the users have been assured by the authorities that the hacker will be kicked out of the security system of Instagram soon.

Graham Hancock is an Instagram user who posted the above smoothie image on its twitter account saying, "Big security breach definitely happening on Instagram. This is the third hacked account I've seen including mine."
